September means back to school!
Meet the teachers...

Danny Barber (An Introduction to Stone Carving)
Shawn Yakimovich (Frontier Medicine)
Erin Richan (Vegetable Fermenting)


Around here skills and products we don’t produce ourselves are just as valuable as money (if not more!). So, if you’re interested in taking a course but your budget is tight and you have a service or product to offer, please don’t hesitate to propose a barter. If we can balance a full or partial trade, we’ll all be smiling in the end.


Vegetable Fermenting

Instructor: Erin Richan 

Half-Day Workshop

September 22

Explore the basics of lacto-fermentation while mixing locally grown vegetables and herbs to create interesting condiments. 

Fermentation boosts the nutrient value of food. The cultured bacteria act to allow more absorption of minerals into our bodies, while also producing vitamins and enzymes that benefit our digestion.
